Q: Dear Dr. Mao,
Do you have a recommendation for removing hair residue?
A: For especially shiny hair, you must get off the residue left from shampoo and other hair products.
Here is the recipe for removing residue from your hair:
Juice from 1/2 lemon
2 Tablespoons apple cider vinegar
1. Combine all of these ingredients and mix well.
2. Shampoo and rinse as usual.
3. Pour this mixture onto your hair, massage it through your hair and onto the scalp, and then rinse well with cool water.
*If you do not want even the slightest lightening of color, omit lemon juice and double the vinegar.
You may also find the specially formulated Traditions of Tao herbal supplement “Hair Nurture” to be helpful. Of course, discuss with your physician before beginning any new health regime.
